This book is the Chinese translation of the authors' 2001 book on health sector reform in ten countries of Central and Eastern Europe. After discussing sector-specific characteristics, lessons of international experience, and the main set of initial conditions, the authors advocate reforms based on organized public financing for basic care, private financing for supplementary care, pluralistic delivery of services, and managed competition. Policy-makers need to achieve a balance, both assuring social solidarity through universal access to basic health services and expanding individual choice and responsibility through voluntary supplemental insurance. The authors also discuss the problems that undermine effectiveness of market-based competition in the health sector.
